An unbeaten half-century from Charlie Hemphrey was the only bright spot for Queensland on another rain-affected day against Western Australia at the Gabba.

Only 60 overs were possible on day two, after just 2.3 were bowled on day one.

Hemphrey made 60 from 156 balls in difficult batting conditions and remained steadfast at the close of play. Marnus Labuschagne and Sam Heazlett were the only other Bulls batsmen to reach double figures.

Simon Mackin was the chief destroyer for the Warriors, taking 3 for 32. Three of the eight wickets fell to spin, with Ashton Agar picking up two. D'Arcy Short bowled Jack Wildermuth with the last ball of the day.
